toenails for president

Suppose they held an election and nobody came?

Suppose a majority of voters refused to endorse our binary political system with its false dichotomies, by refusing to vote for either a Republicrat or a Demolican.

Suppose they went beyond politics and expanded their activities to embrace all aspects of culture, refusing to choose between Coke and Pepsi, not listening to either rock or country, driving neither Fords nor Chevies nor Toyotas nor Nissans. The very pillars of what passes for civilization these days would certainly collapse.

Vote for your cat! Drink green tea! Connect with the wisdom of the ancestors by opening your ears to antique music! Drive a hard bargain!

There is more in heaven and earth than is dreamt of in the most hideous nightmares of a dying world order, and more fascinating and educational objects of interest in my one-bedroom apartment than in all of the hollowed out void which calls itself our political system. What can you learn from elephants and donkeys except how to be a beast of burden? Better we should look to the example of our Dear Leader, Chairman Meow.
